Our Approach

Teeth are as unique as you are. So, when it comes to replacing missing teeth, there is no one size fits all approach.

We take the time to get to know you and understand your smile goals and needs, working with you to create a bespoke treatment plan to restore your smile.

Come meet the team and you’ll soon discover you’re at the heart of everything we do. That’s the Perth Dental Implant Centre difference.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the closest available solution to natural teeth. They are considered the gold standard for restoring a smile, and can be used to replace a single tooth, several missing teeth or a full set of teeth. They can also stabilise loose-fitting dentures.

Tooth Materials

Tooth-Materials

We believe the most important part of an implant system is the teeth. When you receive dental implants for the first time, it’s common for your biting force to increase. Your new teeth need to be durable enough to withstand that extra force and last you for years to come.

Single Tooth Implant

  • Titanium post
  • Titanium abutment
  • Crown made of zirconia, porcelain-layered zirconia or gold alloy

Fixed Implant Bridge

  • Two or more titanium posts
  • Two or more titanium abutments
  • Bridge made of zirconia or porcelain-layered zirconia

Full Mouth Implant Bridges & All-On-4®

  • Four or more titanium posts
  • Four or more titanium abutments
  • Bridge made of titanium-reinforced acrylic, zirconia or porcelain-layered zirconia

Frequently asked questions

There are a variety of tooth materials that can be used to make a single tooth, known as a crown or row of teeth, known as a bridge. The tooth materials we use include:

  • Titanium-reinforced acrylic (Bridges only)
  • Zirconia
  • Porcelain layered zirconia

Tooth material is an important cost component when it comes to dental implants. A back tooth needs to be strong enough to withstand chewing cycles, while a front tooth will require a higher quality and aesthetically natural material.

A dental implant is a tiny titanium post (a biocompatible material) that fuses to the jaw bone though a process called osseointegration. The integrated implant then acts as an anchor to which your dentist can attach an abutment and crown or several abutments connected to a fixed implant bridge to replace several missing teeth or all missing teeth. Dental implants can last a very long time with good oral hygiene.

Success rates for dental implant treatment in Australia is very high at 90-98%, according to the Australian Dental Association (ADA). Dental implant treatment completed overseas doesn’t always follow the same success and we often treat patients with failed implants. Read more about dental implants overseas. Dental implant treatment risks may include:

  • Speech problems
  • Gum tissue growth
  • Infection
  • Bone loss
  • Loose implant
  • Loose tooth
  • Tooth problems

General surgical risks and specific risks to implant surgery also apply and are discussed with you prior to treatment. Careful planning and precision surgery by a suitably qualified dentist is essential to minimising any risks of surgery.

There are hundreds of dental implant manufacturers across the world which will differ in cost and quality. At Perth Dental Implant Centre, we can place any dental implant system that a patient requests as long as it is approved for use in Australia by the TGA.

Our implant pricing packages include Nobel BioCare’s All-On-4® and MIS Implants. The type of dental implant system you choose will influence overall treatment cost, due to the difference in cost of the components.

It’s important to understand that not all implants used overseas are licensed for use in Australia and can fail because of poor quality. Read more about dental implant treatment overseas here.

It depends on whether any teeth need removing and also the condition of the gums and jawbone quality. There are different ways we manage a tooth that needs to be removed. Sometimes we may remove the tooth and wait 2-3 months before placing a dental implant. Other times, we will remove a tooth, place a bone graft material to preserve the bone, then wait longer to place the dental implant. In some cases, we may even be able to place the dental implant at the same time we remove the tooth.

Discovering which option is best for you depends on a wide variety of circumstances and each option has varying costs. The most important thing is to give the patient a successful and long-term outcome. We need to fully assess your mouth and 3D scan before we can decide on the best option for you.

The amount and quality of bone into which we can place a dental implant is different in each part of the mouth. For example, the bone at the front of the mouth can be much thinner which means a more complex treatment may be required to achieve a successful result.

Teeth at the front of the mouth may be much more visible when the patient smiles which can also make the treatment more complex. At the back of the mouth there may be more available bone and less need for an aesthetic outcome, making the treatment far simpler.

Following a 3D bone scan, we can fully assess your circumstances and come up with a unique treatment plan for the best possible results.

There may be a period of time when we need to leave the dental implant to heal before we can create your permanent crown or bridge. We’re able to provide you with a number of different temporary tooth options with different costs. If you’re having an immediate dental implant placed in the front of the mouth, it may be possible to place a crown at the same time, so you won’t go without a tooth.

We use a new and minimally invasive technique to place dental implants , using computer guided 3D printed surgical guides. This allows us to place dental implants using a form of keyhole surgery, making the process much quicker, safer and less invasive. Watch our video on keyhole surgery to see how it works.
